MITRE is currently seeking two Content Marketing Leaders to work on MITRE Accelerator initiatives in Cyber and Microelectronics.

MITRE Accelerator ​ Threat Informed Defense:

"Threat-informed defense" applies a deep understanding of adversary tradecraft and technology to protect against, detect, and mitigate cyber-attacks. At MITRE, we've captured, codified, organized, and curated the key components of this threat-informed approach to focus on practical and systematic ways to understand cyber adversaries. Through the MITRE ATT&CK® framework and related initiatives, we're bringing communities together worldwide for more effective cybersecurity to help protect critical industries, infrastructure, and global security operations. Defending against adversaries requires uniting industry across sectors to advance our abilities in threat-informed defense. At MITRE Accelerator we engage with industry to thwart cyber-attacks with threat informed defense in three ways:

  • The Center for Threat-Informed Defense (CTID) brings together leading security teams from around the world and organizations committed to funding public interest R&D to accelerate publicly available resources critical to cyber defenses.
  • Our ATT&CK Evaluations provide vendors with an assessment of their ability to defend against specific, common adversary tactics and techniques as well as those that push the market to more effectively secure the world’s networks.
  • MITRE ATT&CK Defender™(MAD). MAD focuses on training and certifying practitioners in the mastery of real-world applications of ATT&CK in threat-informed defense.

Microelectronics and The Semiconductor Alliance:

Recent chip shortages have demonstrated the fragility of the semiconductors supply chain, making it apparent that America must re-invest in itself and develop an accelerated path towards autonomy in this critical industry. MITRE Accelerator has convened a cross-industry alliance of leading U.S. semiconductor companies to create The Semiconductor Alliance. The Semiconductor Alliance defines a strategic vision and implementation plan for U.S. government and industry investments in semiconductor research and development, including a proposed National Semiconductor Technology Center (NSTC). Driven not by bottom lines and personal interests, but by an understanding that we must meet this moment as a whole nation, The Semiconductor Alliance is a new MITRE Accelerator initiative that recognizes the work of a collective will far surpass the lengths any one company could go on its own. Emphasis on content development and placement, video, and podcasts is baseline. Creative product marketing to create a movement around with a whole of nation approach to reimagining the semiconductor supply chain is also key.
